Japanese boffins Audio-Technica produce very highly regarded studio headphones, but they also have a few tricks up their sleeve in the sports earphones department. This lightweight model has hooks to keep it firmly in place during your workout. They aren’t going to compete with high-end cans in the audio department, but they do the trick for a pair of workout headphones.
The sports headphones are sweat-proof and washable. They’ll stay put during workouts with the included sport clips. This model has a bass-focused sound and a distinct look courtesy of Monster and Adidas.
The Sennheiser OCX 686G Sports Earphones have a hook design to keep things in place during high intensity workouts. They are sweat and water-resistant and provide passive noise isolation. They are designed for use with Android, Windows Mobile and Blackberry devices. The oval-shaped cable offers a tangle-free design.
This Sennheiser design uses a neckband to keep the earphones put during workout sessions. They aren’t the best for people with larger heads, but everyone else should be happy with them. They have an earbud design and as such allow you to remain alert while out and about. You can put foam ear-bud covers on (which you’ll need to buy separately) if you want a more traditional feel.
